"We all float here." -Pennywise

We've all had nightmares starring this creepy clown from Stephen King's It, which makes him the perfect inspiration for a truly terrifying Halloween cocktail that is sure to give your guests a terrible fright.
Here's what you'll need:
1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz creme di limoncello
1/2 oz amaretto
splash lemon juice
1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1/4 c. sliced almonds
6 maraschino cherries
foil or wax paper
Heat white chocolate chips in 15 second intervals in the microwave, until just barely melted.
Line the counter with foil or wax paper.
Use a spoon to create a mouth shape.
Sprinkle with red sugar.
Insert almond teeth.
Add a cherry nose.
This recipe makes 6 scary clown mouth garnishes, but be sure to make them one at a time since the chocolate hardens quickly!
In a mixing glass, or in this case a mason jar, pour vodka over ice.
Squeeze a wedge of lemon for a splash of juice.
Cover and shake vigorously until ice old.
Prepare a chilled cocktail glass with a partial red sugar rim. Just use the fall out from your clown mouth garnishes.
Strain the cocktail into your glass.
Add your creepy clown mouth, and try not to have a nightmare after drinking it.
